Thursday Thirteen - Girly Edition

Thirteen Reasons that I enjoy being a girl

4. The amazing ability to give birth.

5. The ability to cry my way out of a speeding ticket. (I only did it once, I swear.)

6. I can do this

7. And this

without having to explain myself.

8. But I can also do this

without anyone questioning my womanhood.

9. I can admit that I love Chick Flicks and Chick Lit.

10. Did I mention the shoes?

11. I can also swear a blue streak when my browser unexpectedly closes and I lose nearly my ENTIRE *&;%$&*& Thursday Thirteen post because I failed to save it!!!

12. Not that long ago, I could comfort my babies with just the sound of my voice and my own two breasts.

13. But, in the end, no one can say it better than Maya Angelou.

I enjoy being a 'girl' too.. .but have to admit, there have been occasions when I've wondered how different life would be treating me if I were a boy (and no, I have no interest at all in being able to pee standing up!!!).

This Thursday Thirteen must have a curse, because I lost my entire 13 today, too. I gave up and wrote about something different though. I feel your pain.

I can TOTALLY relate to this list, except that I can't do seven OR eight. I did take Tai Chi years and years ago, before kids and marriage, but am far too out of shape now to do it. Ta for now dahling!
